Then of course once you have the audit clause you have to make sure you can use it. Those tricky publishers, when faced with a dev that demands an audit clause, will then slip in other clauses to limit/reduce the usefulness of said clause. By limiting audits to a max of 12 months after the accounting period they relate to (after which errors can’t be corrected) they are putting a statute of limitations on their mistakes and forcing the dev to go to the expense of auditing every 12-24 months.

Always have either a good lawyer, a good agent or a member of the management team who knows the business side inside out.
